KDnuggets is not only for learning about AI, Data Science, and Machine Learning. A KDnuggets cartoon has been included in an English language and culture textbook for French high-school students.

Hatier Meetup Textbook Since I was a child, I have been a big fan of cartoons and comics and we have many favorite cartoons cut-out and pasted around the house. One of the fun aspects of KDnuggets is creating cartoons on some current Data Science / Machine Learning topics. I send my ideas to a good cartoonist Jon Carter and he makes a drawing.

I am also am a big fan of France and French language, with many visits to France for business, conferences, and tourism. So I was very excited this year when my two passions were combined.

This spring I have received a letter from Hatier, a french publisher, who wanted to use one of KDnuggets Cartoons - When Self-Driving Car + Machine Learning takes you too far ... in their textbook, Let's Meet Up!, Anglais 1re, a English textbook designed to help french high-school readers to learn English via popular culture.

Here is the cartoon as it appears in the textbook.

How far are Americans willing to let AI into their lives?
